Mindful Romance – What separates a successful relationship from on filled with stress and conflicts?
What we all need but rarely ask for or get is to feel understood-to feel that what we say makes a difference, to feel acknowledge, appreciated, and accepted. Equally as important in a relationship is the need for each of us to feel that we are being heard when when we communicate.
Misunderstanding occur so often because it is hard for us to simply “be there” for our mate-it’s difficult to sit still, be mindful and just listen to our partner.
